YFIW, our organization, was launched in 1993 by a group of college graduates who were worried about the country’s state and the lack of youth participation in politics at the state and federal levels. We are looking to create the next generation of leaders by helping youth take up various tasks, especially in leadership roles. Since our inception, we’ve grown in leaps and bounds into a healthy enterprise, with over 2500 volunteers and 500 full-time workers in the US. We are now looking to expand into different countries, first in North America and then, little by little, into territories worldwide. So, if you are a young, energetic, hungry high school graduate, college goer, or even a fresh graduate, who wants to make an impact in your local community, at a federal level, or even on the international stage, we are the perfect place for you. We will discuss Youth Leader Job Description here.
You can meet many like-minded individuals like yourself, who are willing to take the bull by horns, by organizing, debating, protesting, and whatever is required to make a tangible change in diverse domains, like education, the environment, poverty alleviation, gender equality, and a lot more.
As we expand, we continue to look out for talent all over the country and beyond. As the world is getting more and more interconnected, we want to mobilize youngsters worldwide to take on more responsibility at a young age by challenging the status quo. We have a ton of work to do, and we need you to take things into your hands to help us realize our projects. If our employees want to launch any of their own projects, we welcome them to do so. There are absolutely no restrictions when it comes to pursuing creative endeavors at our organization.
Who Exactly Are We Looking For? | Youth Leader Job Description
A self-motivated individual who can lead a team of 10 high school graduates in resolving farmers’ grievances in the rural areas of Southern Mississippi. He must be willing to work for up to 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, with little or no guidance. We will provide training for a period of a month. After that, it is in the hands of the leader. You need to be above the age of 18 with a driver’s license and willing to travel at least once in a fortnight to wherever a requirement arises.
What The Team Does:
This team works closely with the day-to-day functioning of big and small farmers. There are many cases of abuse of farmers’ rights by large corporations. It will be up to you and your team to address local government officials, follow up with any delays, organize rallies, and promote the consumption of locally produced products in the community and various other tasks.
This team also holds conferences to actively attract the community’s youth to participate in the local farming industry. We’ve taken this task upon ourselves, as we would like to see more small farmers taking care of the land, using environmentally friendly practices to maintain the soil Ph, etc.
What Is Expected Of You?
The youth leader is responsible for developing and curating region-specific programs, all the while aiding the team in revamping any old programs with flagrant inefficiencies. He needs to enable his colleagues to perform tasks at the highest level. Motivate the team to take up new challenges and ensure that the team’s morale is always high, as, in rural areas, it might sometimes be difficult to keep their spirits high.
Also, if time permits, we would like the youth leader to pass on his skills by visiting schools and talking about the community’s issues, maybe once a month. Of course, this isn’t mandatory as your duties already include a wide variety of tasks, but it would be great to attract the next generation to get involved in the community.
Delegation of tasks like documentation in video and written form. Ensure that the designated person documents everything from scratch, as well as edit and reorganize existing content. This is primordial to ensure the continuity of the work in case of a change in personnel. Hence, we expect this to be done without fail.
If you are informed about the latest trends in the agricultural sector, this isn’t mandatory, but it would be a great way to distinguish yourself from the competition. You should contribute to projects involving process improvement and operational efficiency while balancing the farmers’ daily demands. It does sound difficult to manage everything, but don’t worry, our team is great, and they work independently. It would be best if you guided them in the direction.
